Clare Bennett

I moved to Lincolnshire 5 years ago to be near the Lancaster and to make a contribution to keeping alive the memory of the men of Bomber Command. I work occasionally at the BBMF Visitor Centre and by volunteering at the IBCC, in research, interviewing and as transcription coordinator I have realised both my dreams.

As a little aside, I am a guide at RAF Digby and also put on exhibitions at the BBMF Visitor Centre. I love interviewing the incredible veterans and have met three Dambusters as well as one of the men who escaped during the ‘Great Escape’. I enjoy travelling and visiting places associated with Bomber Command – Kaafjord where the Tirpitz was moored, V weapon sites and Stalag Luft III, etc.

I feel honoured to be involved in the IBCC and the wonderful Memorial.
